Success las followed the Red and White in nearly every line. All 
of our institutions and pastimes have flourished. In athletics our 
lootball and track teams have been among the leaders. The Aero- 
plane has finished its most successful year. The graduating class is 
the largest in the school's history. Very few high schools in our 
state can boast of sixty graduates; and when we say boast we mean 
it literally. There is nothing that reflects more favorably on a school 
than the fact that it has a good many members who have remained 
and worked until they received the desired diploma. 
This year therefore will remain in the minds of the seniors as 
their pleasantest, not only because it is their last year but because 
it has been, as we say, in every sense of the word a successful year.

We are proud of the Senior class. It started its High school 
exstence with one hundred twenty-five students and graduates with 
about sixty. All through its history it has remained the largest class 
in school in proportion to its year. Much as we regret its depart- 
tire Irom our midst we are glad that so many of its members have 
been enabled to reap the advantages and pleasures Ahch a High 
School offers. With the class of 1912 we lose some of our best 
athletes, a majority of the Aeroplane staff, a good many of our glee 
club members, and in general a true and loyal group of boys and 
girls. Cn behalf of East High school, the Aeroplane wishes the mem- 
bers of the Senior class as happy and prosperous a journey through 
life as they themselves wish for. 
With the present culmination of our greatest efforts the staff 
of 1911-12 completes the contract it undertook to carry out at the 
beginning of the year by issuing eight numbers of the Aeroplane No. 
one knows how much worry and irritation, the worry of not being 
able to carry out this contract has caused the staff except the staff 
itself. But "all's well that ends well" and thus with us.
